Lyrics

deluge
5.11.11 (C) hank barbee

there’s a deluge comin’ down
we’re baggin’ sand and stackin’ ground
pilin’ them up along every mile
gonna meet the flood in a little while

there’s a deluge runnin’ off
grindin’ an beatin’ on the levee walls
its an ocean motion pushin’ over field and lake
our pieces of home in a lost wake

we’re holdin’ onto nothing, “where we gonna go?”

salvation is on the river
muddy waters on the banks
where only scar and stain remain
all that once was, washed away

there’s a deluge comin’ down
we loaded the car and we’re leavin’ town
draggin’ what we can from the muddy street
and a pair of shoes for the little feet

trailer park momma, got her head down
two at her side, one in her gown
poolin’ up the sorrow as she wades along
she never had a thing worth bettin’ on

she’s holding on for life, “don’t let me go”

salvation is on the river
muddy waters on the banks
where only scar and stain remain
all that once was, washed away


hold me on, hold me on, hold me on the river
hold me on, hold me on, hold me on the river
hold me on, hold me on, hold me on the river
hold me on, hold me on, hold me on the river
